NOTE - This Web Application Toolkit has been deprecated due to the new Windows Live API. You can find more information on the new Windows Live API:


We’ll not be making any changes to this Web Application Toolkit going forward.

Adding social capabilities to your Web site allows you to attract new users, keep them on your Web site for longer and get them to come back more often. This Web Application Toolkit shows how, using a few lines of code with the Windows Live Messenger Web Toolkit, it is possible to add social capabilities to a Web site. The Windows Live Messenger Web Toolkit is a JavaScript based set of controls and libraries that allow a developer to quickly and easily add instant messaging to a Web site and harness the power of the Windows Live Messenger network that is used by 330 million users around the world. The Web Application Toolkit will also show how to bring information about users from Windows Live such as their presence, profile information and profile picture.

I've tried to activate my application by going to{myappid} but i get an error message : There is an error: Invalid application Id value.
I did use the application id provided in the live azure portal.

Clement... I faced this same issue... turned out that your MUST preceed your id with "0x"... totally lame that they didn't specify ".aspx?appid=0x{myappid}". Now I'm stuck trying to figure out how to try this thing on http://localhost:xxxxx in Visual Studio. Why doesn't microsoft have built in testing using localhost for this service? Sheesh!
